SEREIN, the Luxury Township at the lush Malabar Hill of Thane

“There was an old woman who lived in a shoe!”— and that nursery rhyme came true when I visited the hanging gardens and Kamla Nehru Park of Malabar Hills years back and entered into the ‘Boot-Shoe House’. I was not an old woman then, but wanted a similar house for me, amidst the very same greenery when I’d grow old. ‘A middle-class person residing in Malabar Hills’— would sound a shaggy-dog story for many but Serein has made it possible ...

happy new year 2017 the style symphony

The sun rises and then sets A lamp lightens up and fades, Moments arise and then die Falls edify to give life a try. A year begins and then ends But life sustains it’s existence.
